Tremors and the beauty of practical effects

I was watching Tremors on tv, which means I didn't watch all of it. Whenever I watch a movie on tv it's like I get ADD haha but I did watch most of it and I couldn't help to appreciate the practical effects used in the film. This is a movie that is more enjoyable because of it. The scene where the monster crawls under the wooden floor is a scene that benefits from the use of practical effects. Also, the scenes where they kill some of the monsters. I hope movies that rely on practical effects never become extinct. If they do, we'll be missing out on a unique movie experience.

Does anyone know any other movies that are more enjoyable because they use practical effects?

Tremors is one of my personal favorite movies, living in a small town at the time. Love the bickering between Val and Earl, I laugh so hard all the time with those two. A quote that I always think of is "We decided to leave town just one damn day to late!"

the one off the top of my head well the most obvious is -"John Carpenters- The Thing".

-An American Werewolf in London
